Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long years
Stolen many man's soul and faith

I was around when Jesus Christ had
His moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St.Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
I killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Oh, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I watched with glee as your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades for the Gods they made
I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedy?"
When after all, it was you and me

So let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reach Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, yeah

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners, saints
As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me, have some courtesy
Have some sympathy and some taste
Use all your well-learned politics
Or I'll lay your soul to waste

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

Tell me baby, tell my name?
Tell me honey, baby, guess my name?

Tell me honey, what's my name?

What's my name?
Tell me sweetie, tell me what's my name?
